Excerpt: I searched for a calculator that had multiple memory locations, worked with fractions and could convert decimal to fraction. I found a few and picked this TI-36X Pro because of the features and price. It displays multiple lines, which is a bonus. What I wasn't expecting was the number of keystrokes required to perform my requirements above. I'm used to simple 2-click STO and RCL functions and now it takes several.
Excerpt: My son needed a scientific calculator for math class. He wanted it to be a Texas Instrument because they have a reputation for being the best. I got him the TI-36X since it is even good for someone going into engineering which I know he is interested in. So long as he takes care of it, it will be the perfect calculator for him all through high school and even through college!
Excerpt: I bought this calculator for a statistics class and it's great calculator which you can use for other math and science classes as well. It is easy to use. I had originally looked at the TI83 but that one cost much more, This one does all that the TI83 does and is cheaper.
Excerpt: Generally speaking it's a great calculator. If I had to improve upon it I would probably change the color of the 6 chrome plated keys on the right side . Just difficult seeing the functions on the keys with the glare from the chrome color. Something to get used to I guess. Also, when the time comes to change the battery there is a neat video on UTUBE for doing just that.
